    To Mel's Family,

    Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loved one Mel. I worked with her for years at Capital Holding. (Unfortunately, I didn't see the obituary until today at approximately 1:30 pm.)

    She displayed all the attributes mentioned above: hard-working, modest, independent, kind, and most important, her love and FAITH in JESUS the Christ always, always shined where ever she went.

    She will truly be missed. Yet, I know that she is celebrating in heaven with Mother Hicks!!!
